Where to go and when for warm, sunny weather

Where is hot in December?While December heralds Christmas, mulled wine and merriment, it can leave something to be desired when it comes to sunshine and warmth!

But North Africa and the Caribbean are perfect come December, and a great choice when you want to celebrate Christmas in the sun!

Goa is another great option, particularly for those who want to laze on sun-drenched sands. Expect highs of 31°C, and almost 10 hours of daily sunshine.

But never fear: there are dozens of destinations which hot up as we enter deep-freeze. Simply read on for a rundown of where to go and when!


Where to go and when for warm, sunny weather


December holidays in Egypt Where is hot in September?

When September arrives, the sunshine of summer has usually left us. But there are still plenty of countries where you can bathe in those last rays, and even some destinations which begin to hot up!

If nothing but temperatures in the high twenties will do, head for the Seychelles, North Africa or the Canary Islands. If looking for pleasant warmth perfect for sightseeing, why not give the Costa del Sol or Cyprus a go instead? 



December holidays in the Canary Islands Where is hot in October?

Britain has well and truly cooled down once October’s rolled round, and Spain will leave sun lovers disappointed.

But head for Cape Verde or Hawaii, and you’ll enjoy temperatures of around 26°C, ideal for sunbathing on vast swathes of sand. If you’re seeking 10 hours of daily sun and temperatures topping 30°C, jet off to Dubai or Egypt: with almost zero rainfall in October, they’re ideal for escaping the onset of winter.



December holidays in Madeira Where is hot in November?

If you can’t face the cool breezes of the Balearics, travel a little further for superb sunshine in November.

Egypt and the Canary Islands are still warm, with temperatures of up to 27°C, but for hot, dry days and superb sunbathing conditions, jet off to glorious Cancun or treat yourself to a Caribbean break.

With temperatures topping 30°C on white beaches where you can laze all day, there’s surely no better choice.



December holidays in Cape Verde Where is hot in December?

Everyone knows Cape Verde’s the ultimate paradise, but few know it’s best visited during December. A group of islands located off the western coast of Africa, it promises paradisiacal temperatures to boot: expect nothing less than daily highs of 27°C, and at least 8 hours of sunshine a day. What could be better?

Well, cheaper flights and bargain accommodation prices, as well as a relatively short 6 hour flight time! Enjoy lazing on the beach, explore in dense forests, or relax on the balcony of your sun-soaked private home.

One thing’s certain: Cape Verde’s a winning destination for winter holidays.



December holidays in Goa Where is hot in January?

January may welcome a new year, but with champagne celebrations behind us it’s an ideal time to jet off and rejuvenate. Holidaying in the Caribbean or Thailand is the natural choice for holidays in January, with temperatures of around 30°C, and balmy breezes to keep you feeling refreshed.

Mauritius, Mexico and Dubai are also great bets for January, with plentiful sunshine and temperatures in the mid-to-high-twenties.



December holidays in Goa Where is hot in February?

By February, most of us are sick of the winter weather: we’re waiting to welcome spring with open arms! Whether you need to top up your tan or escape the cold of Britain, simply jet off to the South Africa or Cuba for temperatures hovering in the mid-twenties.

For temperatures over 30°C tempered by balmy trade winds, enjoy a break in the Bahamas; if seeking somewhere a little cooler, try a break in the mountains of Morocco.



December holidays in Goa Where is hot in March?

It’s during March that many of Europe’s destinations begin to hot up again, so it’s the perfect time for a break in Turkey: temperatures might not be as warm as destinations further afield, but it’s sunny enough to enjoy swimming and sightseeing.

Of course, if nothing but sky-high temperatures will do, jet off to Gambia, Brazil or the Seychelles instead: with temperatures reaching 31°C, sun lovers won’t be disappointed!



December holidays in Goa Where is hot in April?

By April, temperatures in the Caribbean are cooling, but hotting up in Thailand: you can expect temperatures of up to 29°C and 8 hours of sunshine a day.

It is the rainy season in Southeast Asia, but it’s nice to cool down as the balmy evening arrives. Of course, if you can’t bear the thought of humidity on holiday, try Gambia, Dubai or Florida: with little to no rainfall, you’ll certainly escape those April showers.



December holidays in Goa Where is hot in May?

As May arrives, the Mediterranean warms again. Spain, Italy and the Greek Islands are all great destinations for sun, sea and sand, with just the occasional cloudy or rainy day.

The Canary Islands and Cape Verde also enjoy pleasant climes, but they’re not so warm that you can’t enjoy some sightseeing. Of course, if seeking long sunbathing sessions and sky-high temperatures, jet off to Central American destinations like Mexico.
